Revolution British Wrestling
British Heavyweight Championship Tournament
Participating Wrestler No 7 – Johnny Kidd
Johnny Kidd has had what can only be described as an almost fantastic first half of 2004 to date.
The year started off in brilliant form, defeating “Golden Boy” Cameron Knite two falls to one in an epic British Middleweight Championship tournament in January, and going on to defeat the likes of Sammy Ray, Kris Kay, “Misfit” Jorge Castano (twice), Tex Benedict and others following that.
Kidd was shining as one of the top wrestlers in RBW, and all looked well till May, when “Misfit” Jorge Castano finally, on his third attempt, defeated Johnny Kidd to win the British Middleweight Championship in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. Kidd’s unbeaten streak ended, but no sooner this happened, a match was signed between Johnny Kidd and “Wildcat” Robbie Brookside.
The match was a surprise, yet a highly-anticipated contest, with fans unable to pick a favourite, and rightly so, with the match ending in a time limit draw over six rounds. A disagreement between the wrestlers following the contest, put fuel into the fire, and a rematch has been signed for November in Chingford, London, where the original match was held.
To many’s shock, “Sensation of the Nation” Rob Hunter managed to defeat Johnny Kidd in singles action in July, which was not a good result for the former British Middleweight Champion.
Despite the setbacks, the addition of Johnny Kidd to the tournament has made the fan’s favourite a little more unclear, and Kidd could well walk out as the British Heavyweight Champion. An added claim to fame, is Kidd holds the best success percentage of 2004, over all of the other tournament competitors.
2004 Success Percentage – 81.81%
